    Lis Wiehl with April Henry in their new book, "A Matter Of

    Lis Wiehl with April Henry in their new book, "A Matter Of Trust" Book One in the Mia Quinn Mystery series published by Thomas Nelson introduces us to Mia Quinn.

    From the inside jacket flap: When life is murder, who can you trust?

    One minute Mia Quinn is in her basement, chatting on the phone with a colleague at the prosecutor's office. The next minute there's a gunshot over the line, and Mia listens in horror as her colleague and friend Colleen bleeds to death.

    Mia's a natural for heading up the murder investigation, but these days she has all she can do to hold her life together. As a new widow with a pile of debts, a troubled teenaged son, and a four-year-old who wakes up screaming at night, she needs more time with her family, not less--and working Colleen's case will be especially demanding. But Colleen was her friend, and she needs to keep her job. So she reluctantly teams up with detective Charlie Carlson to investigate Colleen's death. But the deeper they dig, the more complications unfold--even the unsettling possibility that someone may be coming after her.

    Lis Wiehl's signature plot twists and relatable characters shine in this absorbing series debut . . . with an intriguing cameo from her best-selling Triple Threat series.

    Yay, a brand new series from the writing team of Lis Wiehl with April Henry. Welcome Mia Quinn. Mia is a highly relatable character, she is a widow, has lots of debts, is trying to raise her son and is forced back into the work force. A murder is committed right before her ears, she is on the phone at that time, and she is given that assignment as well as a few others. I needed Mia to figure out who the murderer was because I sure couldn't. "A Matter Of Trust" is an excellent murder mystery filled with marvelous characters, great plot twists, suspense and thrills. This is an exciting book, extremely well paced and suspenseful. I am enjoying this series and look forward to the next book.

The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255: "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising."

    Good Story - Well Told

    Good character development - you grow to like the main characters and desperately want them to succeed. Satisfactory conclusion, with surprises along the way, as with any good who-dun-it story. Good detail along the way of what a Prosecutor's job is like. Looking forward to reading more of the series.

    Highly recommend!!

    A Matter of Trust is my sixth Lis Wiehl book. I enjoy how she incorporates her experiences in litigation through her characters. She also incorporates her Christian beliefs in her books which I also enjoy. I love her books!

    This is a book you will want to read all in one day. It was so hard for me to put down. The first few pages have you wanting more so fun of intensity, then you are so far into the book that you just have to keep going and going.. well, you get the point.
    The mystery was very well written. I loved how in depth she took us, and how everything tied together even threw every twist she brought to the book. I can’t imagine what the other books in this series will be like. If they are anything like this book they will be absolutely worth the money spent!
    Lis has a beautiful writing technique, the words run smoothly, and there is so much open for your imagination as the story plays out in front of your eyes. The characters are relatable; their stories and emotions are real. Although the murder of Colleen is the central plot, this book tackles bullying and secrets, making A Matter of Trust a little more challenging than just a great mystery.

    Suspense Women can Relate To Today¿s women can relate to Mia

    Suspense Women can Relate To




    Today’s women can relate to Mia as a working mom, a wronged wife, and a struggling woman. The suspense of the story keeps the reader’s interest, while the realistic attempts of Mia as a mother dealing with a teen and the actions of her deceased husband creates a real person. All mothers who work or deal with teens, struggle to raise their children well. You can feel Mia’s struggle as she tries to solve the mysteries. This book is highly enjoyable to all readers of suspense with a female detective, but it fits that small unused gap of books for mature women, too. If you are into mystery/suspense get this book!

    Mia Quinn¿s colleague at the prosecutor¿s office is the victim


    Mia Quinn’s colleague at the prosecutor’s office is the victim of an apparent “hit” while talking with Mia by phone—and she takes her last breath.
    Mia is teamed with Charlie Carlson to investigate her friend’s murder, but Mia has all she can do to keep her life together at home. Her husband’s recent death, a mountain of bills and his newly discovered secrets are occupying her thinking; let alone her troubled teenage son, keeps Mia from feeling too confident about anything these days.
    When she learns this is the second murder in the prosecutor’s office with similar M.O.’s Mia begins to suspect she could be next if she doesn’t watch her back.
    Lis Wiehl has a knack for making her characters believable and so familiar and knowable. A fan of her Triple Threat Series girls, this debut of Mia Quinn promises to be a welcome addition to my library shelf! Thank you, Lis!
    **though Thomas Nelson sent me a free book to review, this was no effort to like, regardless!

    When life is murder, who can you trust? Lis Wiehl¿s signature pl

    When life is murder, who can you trust?
    Lis Wiehl’s signature plot twists and relatable characters shine in this absorbing series. A Matter of Trust gives us an amazing insight into the life of a prosecutor— and mom.
    Prosecutor Mia Quinn is on the phone with her friend and colleague, Colleen, when the unthinkable happens. She hears a shot. When Colleen doesn't answer, she thrusts the phone at the son telling him to try to talk to her and after calling the police rushes to Colleen's house where her friend is bleeding to death.
    One theme subtly woven through the book is that people and circumstances aren't always what they seem to be. Mia and the other characters in the book make all kinds of assumptions about the people they encounter throughout the book only to learn that they are wrong, for good or bad. What matters is doing the right thing as far as you are concerned and placing trust carefully where it has been earned. Forgiveness, compassion, and giving others the opportunity to make things right when possible are also stressed.

    The spiritual themes are incorporated nicely into this story. There is a good balance between introducing the reader to a changed life and pressing the matter.
    If you want a mystery that keeps you guessing right to the end, this is a winner. Although the search is on from the first pages for the killer, it comes as a surprise at the end. However, there are enough clues that the solution is not out of the blue. A well done mystery. A Matter of Trust also contains a series of questions perfect for reading group discussions.
    I received copy of EBook from Thomas Nelson in their Booksneeze Blogging for books for my review.

    Really enjoyed this book... Lots of tension throughout the story. I enjoyed all of the many different story lines that kept you in suspense and wondering who the killers were.
